How do these fits compare to the old school invisions/i3? or even the Push mask? Ive only used the Invision systems growing up. And now the new push since the i3 is discontinued

The old proflex masks are hands down the most comfortable to wear masks ever made. The biggest drawback is changing the lens out sucks. I switched to a Push mask last year because it's almost as comfortable to wear but the lens change is enough to that it more than makes up for the slight difference.

yeah, if you play on a hot day or get gogged with JT goggles, its not a good time. and for some reason, JT Foam seems to collect and store long strands of hair unlike any other goggle (though, not really an issue if you shave your head, are bald, or constantly rock a sandana)

Getting gogged in them is the worst. You either have to fight with them to pull the lens out to clean them good or deal with paint running down the lens until you do. If it wasn't for that I'd still be using the same mask from 2002 but there are so many options out there for masks that are damn near as comfortable with an easy to swap lens.

I rarely change out my lenses. Id still be rocking the i3 if it was available. I love the Push mask i have now and been wanting to pull the trigger on that new sandana one.

Flex lenses are pretty simple to change once you know how to do it

I agree, that does not look good at all. I hope that's not the final product...

Those colors and gloss finish look like something you find on a cheap kids toy. This is disappointing, definitely not even close to the original picture. I never seen flecktarn with salmon pink in it.

I see different green shades and a brown/tan. No pink.

Unless this is like the "blue dress" thing on social media

Yeah I don't see any pink either. If I wasn't in credit card payoff mode I'd be buying one of these and the snow camo one. They both look really good I think.

I feel the true flecktarn camo doesn't have that very light shade of green and that tan brown is definetly not dark enough. Here is a side by side of my Flecktarn shirt I use for playing and the mask. Idk i was hyped for this but now not so much...

It's a custom version of Flectarn I have personally worked with the FC guys on, it's not intended to be the classic color palette. I believe the plan is to rectify the end result so it closer matches the ad, patience is a virtue

Paintball News Rules
  1. No Upping threads. If you have something to say, please do, but don't post in the thread just to take it to the top of the forum.
  2. Do not post "1st post", "1st", "First post" or anything similar (or with any other number) at any point in a thread, even if you post a comment too. It is really annoying and it will result in a ban.
  3. If you don't like something, say why instead of just calling it ugly, lame, gay or any other name. If it is old, simply post a link or report the post with a link to the older News thread.
  4. Please don't post links for places to buy items. That encourages stores, sponsored players and other people to do it and spam the site.
If you have questions, please post them in the Talk to Mods/Admins forum.
